#1 How do I monitor 1000 of news sources to find interesting stories?

One of the biggest dilemmas for editors, today is the overflow of information. Do you know the feeling when yo have 10 or 20 browser tabs opened and you don’t know where to start? We are trying to get all the stories that matter and are engaging with the users right now, displayed as a simple list/chart. The editor gets an overview of what is happening on 1000’s media sites with just one click. He can decide and filter stories through logical categories, time or social signals. Simple & efficient!

#2 How do I find news stories which are important to my readers? How does my competition perform and which topics are important to them? How do I find engaging stories with viral potential? How do I discover effective content for my online publication?

Till now there was no way to monitor your competitors, or how they perform or which stories are hot on their “news desk” right now. (Ever wondered what’s hot on Mashable right now?!) With ViralNewsCart, you can filter stories from your competitors or benchmark media sites. As an editor, you also get a “zeitgeist” tool to see which stories were most popular on social networks through time in general, category or media publisher of your interest. This way, patterns can be detected in the behaviour of your readers and stories delegated strategically to have the most social response.

#3 How do my authors perform? Who on my team is popular on social networks? Who has the most “social” value for my media?

Let’s admit it, Shares, Tweets matter to all of us. The authors who are most “shareable” have a special value for your organization. They drive traffic & engagement to your site. ViralNewsChart gives editors a tool to monitor the efficiency of authors in social engagement. In this way, you as an editor can award more successful authors and help those who don’t write engaging stories. You can also use the tool to find new human resources, finding authors who write about your media topic in a socially engaged way.

#4 How my media performs in social interactions compared to competitors.

It’s always nice to have data about your competitors. Comparing is learning. How many articles do they publish? What’s their average interaction rate with a single article? By digging into numbers, you can detect patterns which will help you form news strategies for your online editorial. You will also see the perception of your media in social networks. How users interact compared to competitors.
